Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

Red light

I'm confused. I thought that a red light meant that you were supposed to stop, as opposed to it just being a suggestion. Be nice if the police would actually enforce that law.

Slow down

There seems to be a nationwide problem, from watching TV and such, but so many people are talking so very fast, as if they've got to get so many words out per second or per minute. They may think they're emphasizing things when they talk fast, but if you listen to all these fast talkers, when they want to emphasize something and want you to understand what they're saying, they slow down when they speak. So why don't they speak slower all the time so you know what they're saying?

What record?

What has Obama done besides the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that has made a significant change to America since 2008?

Oil study

Shipping oil overseas would lower gas prices, the study said. I hope the people of the United States won't take that bait. Remember what happened to our propane prices here in the United States when we contracted too much propane overseas. I wonder why they think all of us are so stupid we don't realize what they try to tell us so they can get their way. Shame on them.

E.A. if memory serves me, Obama signed the taxpayers up for a round of bailout money. Which I thought was stupid. At times of desperation you will give the ridiculous a try. But it was insanity to try something that didn't work the first time.

I think his approval rating is running neck & neck with congress around 40pct. give or take.

It's by far not just my opinion, E. A. What's his latest approval rating?

@EA. I don't remember Obama being in the military. I thought the Marines got him. I remember at one point unemployment was 12.1pct. under Obama. If you want to consider a significant drop to 8.3, Keep in mind once benefits are exhausted, you are no longer a statistic. Unemployment benefits normally lasts 6 mo. Thanks to all the extensions, 2yrs. So for 18 mo people were living on money that they & employer didn't pay into that fund. E.A, that is why those that actually pay taxes were so upset.

The unemployment rate has dropped significantly since Bush left office. That is when it was at its highest point.-- Posted by E.A. on Fri, Sep 19, 2014, at 2:55 PM

This is why no one listens to you. You're making things up again. The unemployment rate when Obama too office was 7.8%. It rose to above 10% after he took office. It didn't drop significantly. It rose significantly. It was at it's HIGHEST point under Obama.

Quit making stuff up and maybe you'll get some attention.
